Active Ability: Bring the Pain[edit | edit source]

The Shieldmaster strikes an adjacent enemy for armor damage before hunkering down and boosting his passive ability, Return the Favor to return even more armor damage for 1 turn.

By using Bring the Pain, the Shieldmaster can create a forward charge that punishes enemies for ganging up against him.

Rank 1: Normal break attack and +1 to Return the Favor

Rank 2: +1 break attack and +2 to Return the Favor

Rank 3: +2 break attack and +3 to Return the Favor

Lore[edit | edit source]

There was one Varl who even the Dredge recognized and feared, called Steinn. Though he as said to have never killed a single enemy, they ran at the mere sight of him. Those who witnessed the battles say as Steinn waded through their midst, shield and cudgel a vicious blur, Dredge would stumble away battered, bruised and with their fearsome black armor shattered and worthless. The warriors who followed behind found little resistance.
